On the eve of the Portuguese Grand Prix, Fabio Quartararo took pole position in qualifying this Saturday in Moto GP. The other Frenchman, Johan Zarco, world championship leader, will accompany him on the front row on Sunday (3rd).
Two weeks ago, in Doha, Fabio Quartararo and Johan Zarco were on the first two steps of the podium. They will be in the front row at the start of the Portuguese Grand Prix this Sunday at 2 p.m., with Quartararo (Yamaha) in pole position and Zarco (Ducati) third.
Second fastest when concluding the qualifying session in Portimão, Fabio Quartararo finally inherited pole position a few minutes later. Francesco Bagnaia, on Ducati, had initially signed the best performance, but his time was invalidated for not respecting a yellow flag.
Marc Marquez back and sixth
A demotion which allows Johan Zarco, second of the first two races of the season and current leader of the world championship, to interfere in the front row with the third time in qualifying. Alex Rins (Suzuki) will start from second position, between the two French.
Marc Marquez, six-time Moto GP world champion, made his return to competition this weekend, after nine months of absence due to injury. The Spaniard, with his Honda, took sixth place in qualifying and is notably ahead of his teammate Pol Espargaro, 14th.
